VA Awards Contract to 1Vision, AMC Health for Telehealth Solutions

On Monday, MHW learned that 1Vision LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of HMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC., and AMC Health, a leading provider of proven real-time virtual care solutions, have been awarded the Authority to Operate (ATO) and provide telehealth solutions to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

With this agreement, 1Vision’s and AMC Health’s telehealth solutions will be made available to enrolled Veterans and their family members. Earlier this year, 1Vision and AMC Health announced their participation in an up to 5-year VA Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with a guaranteed minimum of $50,000 and a potential maximum $258,668,957, to provide telehealth solutions, confirming it meets the government’s stringent data security and privacy standards.

VA is America’s largest integrated health care system, serving nine million enrolled Veterans and providing care at 1,240 sites of care. VHA’s Home Telehealth Program relies on telehealth platforms from commercial contractors classified by the VA as Medical Device Data Systems.

“It is a significant achievement to receive ATO certification from the VA and we are proud to help make health care more efficient and accessible for our Veterans,” said Nesim Bildirici, CEO and president of AMC Health. “The VA’s ATO stamp of approval indicates that our telehealth offering can provide much needed solutions to organizations that require the highest levels of mission-critical security.”

“We are thrilled to partner with AMC Health to deliver telehealth services because of the company’s efficient, cost-effective offerings and knowledge about compliance requirements,” said Bill Kirkpatrick, Chief Executive Officer, 1Vision. “Our Veterans deserve increased access to quality health care and the resources that can improve their access to healthcare and embrace all the benefits that telehealth offers.”
